Set overly strong pace at Salisbury but still earned a good rating in finishing second. Fellow pace-setters improved next time out.
Features: Right-handed, uphill finish.
Draw Bias: Strong – Stall 1 wins 3 times as often as it should. Surprisingly stall 2 has a poor record but it might just be a statistical quirk as a low draw is generally favoured.
